By popular request, Twelve South presents the “little black” BookBook for iPhone.

Charleston, SC, June 17, 2012 – Twelve South is pleased to unveil a Classic Black version of its best-selling BookBook for iPhone 4/4S as well as a refreshed Vintage Brown version. Like the original, the new black version of BookBook marries a wallet with an iPhone case, creating one must-have iPhone accessory. The Classic Black BookBook for iPhone, designed at the request of customers, and the Vintage Brown BookBook for iPhone are available now at and soon at Apple Store for $59.99. More information and a gallery of images can be found here.

Twelve South BookBook for iPhone 5BookBook for iPhone, introduced by Twelve South in 2011, launched the iPhone wallet category. The hybrid wallet and iPhone case looks like a pocket-sized book. Open it up and you will see that it holds a driver’s license/ID, credit cards, cash and iPhone, eliminating the need for both a traditional wallet and an iPhone case.

iPhone features become even more valuable when combined with BookBook. For example, Find My iPhone becomes “find my wallet” – it’s like a GPS for your billfold. Passbook, a new feature in the upcoming iOS 6, will store your digital cards right next to your plastic cards. And now you can share thousands of pictures of your kids or pets vs the six plastic coated versions in your previous leather wallet.

“Taking pictures is just as easy,” said Andrew Green, Creative Director of Twelve South. “You simply pull the top red tab out, push the iPhone up and snap a shot. You can always count on the highest performance from your iPhone camera when the camera is fully exposed.”

In addition to handsome looks, BookBook cleverly disguises iPhone and your activities inside. While you may be texting a friend on your iPhone, from the outside it looks like you are studying the classic works of Shakespeare. Are you memorizing a short poem, or playing a quick game of Angry Birds? This stealthy security of BookBook lets you access iPhone in many places a regular iPhone case could not.

Killian Bell, a contributing writer for Cult of Mac said, “The BookBook is the best wallet case there is for iPhone.” Josh Wright of Macgasm added, “I am in love with BookBook for iPhone. It really has helped me reduce my pocket clutter, and I like the idea of keeping my phone and wallet in one case.”

Both the new Vintage Brown and Classic Black BookBooks are hand-distressed so no two are exactly alike. Since it looks like a mini book, BookBook disguises your wallet and iPhone, while protecting you from looking like everyone else. Streamline your life by trading your traditional wallet and iPhone case for a BookBook for iPhone. With a BookBook in your pocket you’ll never forget your wallet, or phone, again. Order today at
